Hot spring football action from around the Big 12.
*I touched on the big stories around the Sooners this spring. I hope to write a little more in the near future about some of the news that is slowly trickling out of Norman, especially about the defense.
*Also broke down an important spring on the 40 Acres for the Longhorns.
*In terms of the most interesting offseasons in the conference, I'd put Baylor near the top. Still fascinated to see what Matt Rhule can pull off there.
*Checked out Atomic Blonde last week on a flight – easily the sexiest Bourne movie.
Also watched Three Billboards Oustide Ebbing, Missouri. The movie presents a strange case: The superb quality of the performances (Frances McDormand, Sam Rockwell, Woody Harrelson, John Hawkes, even Peter Dinklage) actually makes the horrific writing and plotting stick out even more. Rockwell's character arc feels particularly absurd.
*Predictions for hoops this weekend:
- Southeast: Kentucky over Nevada
- West: Gonzaga over Texas A&M
- East: Villanova over Texas Tech
- Midwest: Duke over Kansas
